BIO

Niklas has been somewhat of a journeyman until relatively recently and golf fans must be wondering where he has been after a strong finish to 2020. He turned pro in 2007 and has bounced back and forth between the Challenge Tour, European Tour and NGL Tour, where he won two events in 2017. 

Niklas earned his European Tour card for 2019. He only managed two top 10's that season but earned his card again for 2020, where he has been much improved. He capped off 2020 with finishes of 8-11-9. It wouldn't be a massive surprise to see Niklas bag his maiden European Tour win in 2021, probably at a course where he can use his power with wide fairways.
